Patriots | May not pick up option on Brandon Lloyd
New England Patriots WR Brandon Lloyd doesn't appear to be part of the team's plans for 2013. According to a source, he isn't projected on the team's depth chart even though he signed a three-year, $12 million deal a year ago. Lloyd, who caught 74 passes for 911 yards and four touchdowns last season, may not fit due to his personality, which a teammate described as "weird." Lloyd's inability to find a consistent niche in the offense, his personality and his aversion of physical contact could have the Patriots looking elsewhere. He has a $3 million roster bonus, but it isn't clear when it must be picked up. Should the Patriots opt not to exercise it, they'd still be hit with $2 million against the salary cap, which could be spread over two years, but the team would save $2.5 million.
